Marc Morano: Public Health Bureaucrats Were High on Power in 2020
"In 2020 though, the World Health Organization, which by the way, Bill Gates is the second funder behind the United States government to the World Health Organization. Their leader Tedros was picked by China, sent a delegation of people world health officials to China to investigate Chinese response. Within a matter of days, they came back and essentially said, we have seen the future. It is China. If you want to contain this virus, do exactly what China's doing. Italy followed suit and then the entire western world followed suit based on World Health Organization guidance. Anthony Fauci was even January 2020 was in an interview saying, can you imagine us shutting down San Francisco in New York like they're doing in China? It could never happen here in the U.S.. Neil Ferguson, the modeler then said, we thought it couldn't happen in the west until it did. So this was like just manna from heaven for these public health bureaucrats who had just couldn't even imagine that they could have this kind of power and sway. And then of course, Donald Trump, I still maintained that if Hillary Clinton were president, I think there would have been massive pushback, but because Trump of a conservative Republican did this emergency decree and then got duped into supporting the ten days, the slowest. We all got duped. We have to be clear. We all got duped. I never suspected when they're talking about a vaccine that there could be anything negative about that. I thought, what a great thing. How wonderful. Let's get this on the fast track. Most of us had no clue what was actually happening. And we are, it is in our national character to be nice to go along. We trust it. And we trusted, this is often what people do. But at some point you begin to wake up, you begin to look around and say, hey, wait a second. What is happening? But those of us who did speak up were crushed by the global elites. I
Marc Morano: The U.S. Has a Long History of 'Reset' Ideology
"Like me were a little bit slow to pick up on it because we thought, well, this has never happened. There's no precedent for this kind of thing. In our nation, and we can pretty much trust people even if they're on the different side of the political spectrum. They're not going to do anything crazy. But they did. They did. In fact, well, in the book, I go back to 1913 in the U.S., Woodrow Wilson's administration was when they first had this ideology, if you will, of the administrative state ruled by credentialed experts over all aspects of your life. And keep in mind, it wasn't done as an evil mastermind plot. This was presented as, you know, people aren't educated enough. We can actually have experts running most aspects of their lives and we can have an unelected bureaucrats literally in credentialed experts managing everything from nationalizing as well. The economy from agriculture to energy to food. All the way through. And this was seen as a positive benefit. Ebbed and flowed throughout the years. In the 1930s, Roosevelt had a kitchen cabinet adviser Stuart Chase, who actually proposed an early version of this great reset, literally nationalization of energy, stopping your government control of news and propaganda, his words. And he actually said, why should the Soviets have all the fun? And this was, of course, during the time when the soap Joseph Stalin was seen as this great reformer and Russia and all the progressives were very excited. So you fast forward and what happened is if you get into the 70s well, particularly the 90s and the last decade and the previous decade, you have a lot of these same progressives now replacing Russia with China. So you have Justin Trudeau saying China is he has basic admiration for their dictatorship. You have Tom Friedman of The New York Times decades ago saying that China's doing it right and that they don't have the messiness of democracy. The UN climate chief praising China.

Mike Gonzalez on Hispanics and Identity Politics
"Made fun of you. I made a little joke in our green room earlier. I used the epithet, the adjective Hispanic, you wrote a book, let's put it up there the plot. This is your first blockbuster book, the plot to change America. How identity politics is dividing the land of the free. This book is a real glimpse behind the curtain mic of the kind of divide and conquer philosophy, which has gotten us to a place where you as a Cuban or a family from Cuba, if you fill out an official federal form, there'll be a box that separates you from me that asks you whether your Hispanic or whether you're non Hispanic, how much has this identity pot. Let's start with this. How much is identity politics left political parties and ideologues and radicals and borrowed its way into government. In fact, because Hispanic is not a race, it's a questionable by itself in the senses. They ask you, it's completely divides the country into Hispanics and non Hispanics. And I choose never to answer the question. This is obviously an artifact of the activists of the 1970s who insisted that the Census Bureau create this category. Just make it up. Yes, and when the Census Bureau, which at the beginning, now of course, the Census Bureau has been infiltrated. But back in the early 70s, they were quite reluctant to do this. And there's a very famous exchange, which I quote in my book, in which a director of the Census Bureau said, we have all the data that you need. We have the language to speak at home. The nation of origin, you know, we have all that and they activists said, we don't want the data. We want the group, create a category. Let's unpack that. So what is the objective of the activist in the 70s who say to the bureau, we don't care whether or not they speak Spanish at home. We want a label. We want a box. Why do they want that Michael? Well, it's because once you have a group that you can isolate from the rest of the country, then you have a victim who category. In fact,

US bat species devastated by fungus now listed as endangered
"A bat species devastated by a fungal disease has joined the endangered species list. The northern long eared bat was classified as threatened in 2015, but the U.S. fish and wildlife service has now declared it an endangered species driven to the brink of extinction by white nose syndrome, a fungal disease that has killed millions of bats among a dozen species attacking their wings, muscles, and ears. It causes bats to come out of hibernation too early. If you live on bob's beetles and other insects, that's not good for your survival. White nose syndrome has spread across nearly 80% of the bast geographical range in 37 states and Canada. Fish and wildlife officials say they will work with timber companies and landowners to protect trees where bats nest and seek cooperation from the wind energy industry to reduce bat strikes by wind turbines.

Xinjiang loosens some restrictions after lockdown protests
"Authorities have loosened restrictions in China's western Xinjiang region after locals held demonstrations against the city's three month lockdown. The displays of public defiance erupted after several people died in a fire, as emergency workers took three hours to extinguish the blaze, many attributed the delay to obstacles caused by anti virus measures, officials opened up some neighborhoods in the capital of her own Chi where many residents claim they had their doors physically changed shut. Many believe such brute force tactics may have prevented residents from escaping the fire. The demonstrations as well as public anger online are the latest signs of building frustration with China's intense approach to controlling COVID-19.

I don't know because you sound like an M and M song. My wrap here for M and M but it's just, it's so nerve wracking still being a viewer, even though I was a challenger on it. So it's just, I'm like, oh, what's going to happen, you know? Yeah. That was a really nerve wracking episode, though, out of a lot of them that have been aired already. And then you also have to relive it, you know? Yeah. But you have to put yourself back in that space where it's like, oh, I remember how I felt in this moment and you know? Yeah, my adrenaline's just bumping the same as if I'm in elimination right now or doing that scary challenge, so.

But seriously, this was, this was a surprising, I was surprised by who they threw into elimination with this episode day. I wasn't really. I wasn't really surprised. I was like, okay, let's just get it going. But you know what I was surprised about? Did you see how Dominic was excited and praising Angela? Did you see that? And did you see Angela's look up? I got this part. Hey TJ, I think you made a mistake. I got partnered with him again. She was trying to do it again. Reset the algorithm. But they worked really well together. They definitely seem to work really well together. And I like because he trusted her. I like seeing DOM be respectful of someone for once. That makes me think what's so different about her as opposed to cachet or someone else who he was with. You know what I mean? 'cause we've seen him how he talks about other people when he got with Angela, it was all praise. And it's because he's the type of person where you have to earn his respect or you have to literally jump through hoops to show him that I am whoever to earn his respect. What is it, you know? It was just a different vibe when he got Angela as opposed to when he was with cache. I'm side eyeing that in so many ways. But yes.

Can I just say, I did not see them winning. I did not. I didn't either. Not only not only did I not see them winning at all. But I also was kind of glad at the time that I wasn't seeing them win because I don't know, I'm just, you know, wasn't a cachet fan initially and Tyson kind of comes across like he thinks he owns the challenge. So I don't know how to get humbled. Yes. And then I got humbled. Because they started out last, and then they came out first. It also brought back some memories because I know someone's gonna reference this online, so I have to just call myself out now before beat them to it. I too was drugged through water, shout out Johnny Riley. Carrying puzzle pieces in the challenge. So there is a meme of that somewhere. So I could understand caches plight. In that moment, but girl, I did not see them winning at all. Wow. And even with her, because as soon as the algorithm chose Tyson as her partner, I was like, oh, it's up. It's up. And then when we seen the challenge, I was like, oh, it's down. It's dead. She seemed to me. She seemed more excited. She seemed excited, like, oh, I got tight, 'cause I mean, who wouldn't be?

Come from a competitor. They're great to watch, but the ones that involve endurance swimming, I don't. I remember times where we had to jump off a boat in turkey and swim and dive for a raft instead. They gave me anxiety, and this one looked, I mean, a lot of people seem to be struggling with this one. So crazy, my last season of the challenge, the purge that sent me home because nobody sent me home on that season. It was a purge. On that season, I fell. I think we were like 40, 50 feet in the air, and I fell into the water. And you know how with water getting your lungs, you get pneumonia, and that's exactly what happens to me. So now I have a fear because I ended up with pneumonia. The doctor was like, yeah, I'm glad you came in because it was right at your heart. It was circulating around the heart. So now I have this phobia, you know, kind of tea of why I haven't been back. I'm a little scared. Oh, okay, and that's a real tea.

These are not cushy competitions. Dave on almost died. I'm glad that I didn't. First season got hypothermia. Throw that out there. Oh, girl. I mean, I got out of the back of a bus.

It's really embarrassing we'll talk about it later. But the show is intense.

And it was also interesting to me Cinco and azaz strategy of not saying who they wanted to go in. Would you have done that? I don't know how I feel about that. Do you think that's a bad thing? Thinko did not trust her. So what I would have done, though, I would have lied. I probably would have just pulled a random name out of the sky or probably gave a person a heads up like, look, don't take it personal, this is about to happen. When somebody who's my friend, like, don't take a personal eye. But I don't know. You should have said something. Gave her something. Tyson something. I mean, I can understand where he's saying like kind of he didn't feel safe, but I feel like giving the opportunity they just kind of set their quietly. So then that left room for Tyson and cache to pick anyone that they wanted. Thank anybody. She said, who are we looking at? She said, every time she said everybody. I was like, exactly. Exactly. Everybody Angela. Right. But everybody let's be clear, it was everybody, but Angela. Yeah, that was super, super intense. And I'm so glad we got to see it. I'm also glad that we have cachet on this week's episode. We got into so much stuff. I'm not gonna lie.

She didn't hold back, which we appreciate. We also got confirmation that dumb is does indeed have the personality of a peanut, at least in her experience. So, you know, we just got a lot from this episode. Is it what you expected? Oh, oh my goodness, this podcast episode was amazing. I'm so excited. I'm excited for the listeners to hear more about her and to hear her. So just to see her personality, you know what I'm saying?

I'll be scared, boo. That episode was a lot. And it's weird reliving it, you know? And especially like on love island, I didn't have to watch myself, but I still haven't watched my season. I probably won't ever. So, but I'm nosy, so I have to watch the show. And it's just a lot. It's just a lot. Yeah. I mean, there's a whole lot of emotion. Tell me what your initial kind of feelings are right now. Well, obviously, get into it and tap into some questions we have for you. But what are you feeling and why?

"I never said anything negative or personal about Tiffany to make sure I don't go in because I don't really need to do that. It was easy for me to say, hey, she's manipulated. And she's her and her partner's hungover. I didn't need to say anything personal. And I would never do that. All right, miss Melissa, I'm glad we got your side girl. We did. That give the people something to think and talk about. Right? And probably not believe, but hey, it's all right. At least you got it off your chest. You got it off your chest. And we're glad that we could create a space for you. Thank you so much, Alyssa for joining us on the official challenge podcast. Were you nervous coming out were you nervous about the questions you were going to be asked coming on here? No, I wasn't nervous about the questions because I know I'm just going to be open and honest, but it was more so I'm nervous about if people are going to believe me or not. So that's all. So you were nervous about Devon. Oh and her reputation. I'm just kidding. Listen, if I was nervous about day Vaughn, I wouldn't have got her question. I would totally, I'm totally guessing. We're harmless here. We're harmless. We like to have fun. We are so glad that you came and you got to tell yourself. It does definitely open up a lot. And I think people, anyone watching with two eyes, maybe even an eye and a half could recognize you were playing again. You weren't just, it clearly wasn't just for being. Like you were playing a game and so far it's working and working very well. You got out a strong competitive strong competitor. So good on you. We love watching you. We're excited to see where it goes and where it leads. Yeah, I mean, I don't want to say you guys are bringing me over to being big brother fans. Hello. Hello. As a challenger, I feel like. So we all you guys. I know. You had all the Tiffany and me, all big brothers. I know. I feel like Dave bond's been in charge of Cassie. But no, it was such a pleasure having you here.

"MTV's official challenge podcast. Challenge, UFA edition. Now we are three episodes in, and I can not believe it, my baby, James went home. Okay, actually I can't believe it, because look, his performance is in some of the games. I'm a just be honest, or not necessary. This time it wasn't his fault, though. That is fair, but when it comes to politics in the house. I mean, we haven't seen anyone do it quite like King James. Maybe I just call him King James. I think I'm gonna test that out. I like that. I feel like I feel like, I don't know, what were your thoughts in watching this episode day? Oh my goodness, it was bittersweet. Like, it felt so good to see him playing and doing everything that he's doing. And it sucked that he went home, but it sucked even more because he did his portion. You know what I mean? Right. And that's hard. Being on a team, you have to fully rely on your partner. And so seeing that, oh, I did my part, but you didn't do yours. And rooting for him and it's like, damn, like I really wanted this for him. Yeah, and it's tough because he was basically kind of at risk for every episode we've seen this. All right. And so that becomes really tough as well. And this particular challenge was different to say, I mean, it was part like, you know, it was like, there was a puzzle games game show. People were bringing in wheel of fortune type strategies that didn't seem to work. They were like made up words. It was a lot. It was amazing. Where did we pull those from? TJ, where did you get those from? The shelves to make the staircase for a puzzle. And it's like, is it too much? I feel like they must have had four people. Working on one game because it was very, can I buy a vowel stairway to heaven? You know, American ninja warrior. It was like all in one challenge, which is, I guess, on one hand, kind of the epitome of the challenge, right? It's everything. It's work. And it's partner. We in this together. This one was definitely, I need my partner to survive. Like, you know, you see some challenges where there for a team, but one person can carry the load. And we've seen it happen.

"Favorite all star from big brother and this is MTV's official challenge podcast. Yes, challenge you SA edition. Ain't that the truth and what an episode that was like, uh, I can't first of all, I just start calling TJ diabolical because he takes so much joy and pleasure into mixing things up. And now that we have this whole algorithm thing in there, I just TJ is having way too much fun. What are your thoughts on this algorithm? Let's take the TJ because what makes me laugh is when he cackles and how people especially hype over water. Like he gets so excited from seeing Elliot get hurt. Right. He really does. But this episode, Devin, messy, so messy. Oh, so. Episode with caddy. And I told you it was gonna be some foolishness surrounded around Cinco 'cause that man is fine, and there is no other well, it's not a lot of eye candy in there. I know. What was that day with rewind the tape? There was no other. No, I agree. He is a nice piece of eye candy and you know when you were in a house like that and tensions are running high and you don't have a lot of other distractions. You know, it's easy to kind of get caught up in that way, so there's definitely a lot of drama happening there. I just want to say this was a shock for me because I did not expect it to end the way that it did. That no point did I see them going into elimination at no point did I see them losing that elimination? I was just shocked. But that damn James. That's me, James. Two times in a row now. It's just coming out, you know, my love for James kind of grows more and more, like I was side eyeing him when he was hyperventilating, coming off of that thing. You know, I was like, James, get up, get up, you know, you grit through your teeth and you're like, okay, but yeah, but he pulled it out again, like, Shane money. Okay, sir. And he looked like he was having fun too. Yes. It was just crazy. But I also can't get into what they did to Tiffany. Like, my girl was a blind society. And I don't know, you know more than I don't know, I don't know if that feels fair. Does it feel fair to you, Dave, and knowing the crew like that? No, not at all. Tiffany got a heavy, heavy reputation. She also was voted in America's favorite. She got a heavy, heavy, heavy reputation. And there's a lot of controversy because a lot of people say that she actually should have been the one to win. The season. And a lot of people don't like that. When you shine, people don't like that. And so her coming into this season is unfortunate because you come in with certain people attached to you and then you start to see them peel off. And it's like, well, damn. I'm out here alone. And it's a sad feeling. It's what TJ says, I feel like he says it every season, which is like even when you think it's a team game, you have to always remember it is an individual game. Much like big brother, right? And so you can not put much stock into any quote unquote alliances that you have because it trust no body. No one. And I mean, the way they were coming after Tiffany in this episode was pretty, pretty rough and pretty tough to watch. They really, really came for it. How do you feel about that challenge though? Because I actually feel like it looked kind of fun. I feel like that's one I would want to do. Yeah, I do feel like a lot of challengers tend to shy away from heights over water. But that one actually did look a lot of Scrabble. Yeah, right? So it looks like something I would be interested in doing. And we know I can't stand the heights of the water, but that didn't look too bad. And then Tyson made it look super easy, but cake. I mean, the fact that Tyson is like, yeah, I'm gonna do this about 30 more times. Okay, Tiger Woods have a seat that's cool. I mean, Justine, I feel like got the real win out of that 'cause she's like, you know what? I'm a just stand up here on land like Ariel after she gets her feet and I'm gonna just help put the letters in and you can go back in the water over and over and over again and bring more letters. Smart strategy though. You should already said, you know, I do the word games on my phone and so I know where my lane is and she was like, you gonna do that part and I stay over here and it was teamwork made the dream work. Teamwork made that dream work. Who was the one who wrote manipulate? Oh, that was Angela. A long ass word. And she had a messed up. I think she thought a big brother who ever had because that's one of our challenges. That's one of our comps. You go out, you use swim around for letters and then you come back and you have it's whoever build the longest word. That's the one who wins. And so she came back with manipulating, you know, she thought she had it in the bag. And we were like, no, baby, new show, new rules. Right. She's over here writing anti disestablishment, Harry and his girl. That does not help you only need you to break it down into dog, pause, log, hog, so you can get more words and more points. Right. Lesson learned for the next one. But I am so excited for this interview. I feel like we got some real tea. Which we love. And some inside scoop. And it's cool hearing how you big brother urs interact, even beforehand, 'cause you shared, you've spilled a little tea too about why some of the comments were maybe extra deceptive because, you know, I don't want to give it away, but you had some insight behind the scenes as well day. So yeah, it'd be your own Friends. Out here wilding. Girl, tell me about it. Let's get into this interview. We have an incredible guest for all of you today. She is a legendary big brother competitor. She was a part of the cookout on season 23, some say she was the master of it all, and she really stirred the pot this episode, which unfortunately led to her being sent home. That and being carried to her bunk bed, but we'll get into that. But we're very excited to get her side of the story now, Tiffany Mitchell is on the podcast today, so let's get into this interview with her. Hi, my name is Carmen Laurent. I'm the host of beauty translated, a new podcast from iHeartRadio. This is the podcast all about celebrating the inner and outer beauty of the trans community. Season one takes place in the queer hub of the south, Atlanta. Despite being the target of anti trans legislation over the past few years, many transgender people still proudly call the south home. I'm a trans woman from Atlanta, and it has been a longtime dream to share my story, and so many other stories with you. At its heart, my new podcast is a love letter to my transgender community, but all are welcome here. Listen to beauty translated on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Hey, this is Carolina Barlow. And this is definitely Leary, and we're the hosts of true romance.

"Hey everyone, it's Devin Simone, and I'm Devon Rogers. And this is MTV's official challenge podcast. Yes. Tori and anisa are passing the mic to us to dive into the first ever season of the challenge USA. And we are so excited. I mean, so excited to dive into the season AKA get all the tea with you fans, especially since it's the first time ever, our cast is exclusively competitors from big brother, survivor, love island, and the amazing race. And you already know I'll be rooting for big brother over here, okay? You all know I've done three seasons of big brother where I was also America's first African American favorite House guest. Now also done a few seasons of the challenge. And I am a two time challenge finally, catch that and host of the challenge aftermath, also can I just throw in TJ said that my challenge finale was one of the most epic and one of his favorites of all time. I just have to put that out there. And if you want to go back really far, I was a cast member on the real world Brooklyn, don't judge me on that piece, but I just have to say, because of that, you know, I don't know that I'll ever be rooting for big brother. Hold on now. Hold on. They don't have to change my mind about it. If you love me, you got to love them. We are packaged. Okay, fine, I love them. All right, so that that first episode was amazing. Devon, what are you thinking so far? And what are you looking forward to this season? This season is going to be insane. I'm so excited. I'm mad 'cause I ain't on it, but I'm so excited to watch it. Like, this is crazy. Like, what? But to see these different shows come in and compete. I'm telling you, the challenge is literally a sport. And it's a different show all in itself. And you see so many people come in and they're like, I can do that. I can do the challenge. Put your money where your mouth is, 'cause now we get to see you put in the work. Right. So that's what I'm excited to see. All those armchair quarterbacks that for years are like, ah, I can do the challenge I've done something like this before. Nope, the challenge is its own game. It's very different. And it's a new era of the challenge that it's opened up to other shows, because they were very protective of it. We were very protective of it for a long time. It used to be just road rules, real world, back in the day. And now we're seeing it take on a new life, which overall, it's cool to expand the family, but you're gonna have to earn your spot in the challenge family. You are, you're gonna have to wait for your spot. You gotta earn your stripes, and I don't mean by going into elimination, mainly because I don't ever go in them. But I do mean in general by, you know, playing the game, getting your hands dirty. But I love it, though. I love seeing how Ava and Kylie went into the elimination 'cause I feel that is where you 'cause even though you didn't and you still made it to the final third place. Amazing, right? You did what you had to do. But I feel like a lot of challengers are made. Well, let me speak for me. I was made down there on the elimination floor. That's where I was made. I've done two seasons, and my elimination record is 5 and two. So she's working. Work that has been done. And so to see them win and succeed and come out of that, I'm like, yeah, you done been in the mud. Like, it's such a good feeling. I'm so excited about this season. I can't even explain it. I mean, it's gotten bigger, it's gotten better and we have an algorithm AI involved basically. Algorithm involved, picking the partners like this is going to be certainly one to watch. You know what I love about the algorithm? It's TJ's way of forcing them not to stay with their exact TJ's way of saying yeah, you can be mad at love island today, but a love island member might be your partner next week. So then what are you gonna do? You're gonna have to be on your goals 'cause you gonna have to work with anybody. You might work with your best friend, or you may even work with your enemy. It doesn't, it's up to the algorithm. And it's perfect. Exactly. It levels the playing field. Looking at the reddits 'cause if you don't know guys, we are Reddit lurkers and Twitter and Instagram we see your comments and all the things. And so let us know what you're thinking, you know, tweet us, comment, we're looking. But when the cast was released, I feel like some people kind of looked at the photos or fans of the show were like, okay, my money's on, you know, these people to win. Even when we talk to her, she speaks about how being intimidated by like a Tyson, for example, or Angela. But then you have this, and it's the thing no one saw coming. And it's like, okay, that changes everything. This really is and TJ says this, it's anyone's game. Like James. No one really, there was no hype around James. There was none. Oh, he was on the amazing race. He won, but he's not going to do well in the challenge. And the first thing we saw, he saved his challenge life. I'm with a rap. Can I just get around of applause for Jen? That's the first thing he did. You know, I don't like to pick favorites and I playfully tease against big brother, but really I like any good players. And I just, I already love the way that James is playing. And I think that was just brilliant gameplay so excited to see it play out. And so excited to share this journey with everyone listening, our audience, sort of the extended challenge family and you, tayvon. We've been talking about doing so. I've seen people tweet that we need to be together and do something together. I don't know if you've seen it, but I've seen oh, I've seen the tweets and the comments. I've even gotten text messages about it. And so I'm excited that it's finally here. Girl, this is the closest you and I are going to get to doing an actual challenge together. Say that again. Twice. 'cause they call, but no, no. The way my bones are set up now. Right. These auntie's, hold on. Let me go pull up my one gray eyebrow hair. Spoken out in this moment. But this is gonna be so good. I love our dynamic the way we bounce off of each other. There is no other person that I would rather do this with. Also, you guys, this will be the place, no other podcast will have, where we are going to try and get the juiciest answers. And y'all know, if you follow me in these Twitter streets of Twitter video USA, you already know. I don't play around when it comes to getting the tea. I'm nosy. I want to know what's going on. And so Devin is the same way over at Reddit university. And so we are trying to figure out what do you want to know. So send us your questions. Let us know because we are really going to dive in and get them to answer the hot juicy juicy questions. All right, well, we have an incredible guest for you today. You know her from big brother 23, she was a member of the infamous cookout alliance and she came home with an epic elimination win today after a very rocky and mathematically incorrect challenge start. Aza awassa is on the podcast today. Now let's get into this interview with her. There's nothing like being in the stands for live Washington Nationals baseball and ticketmaster has your seat.

"Hey, this is Devin Simone. You may know me as a two time challenge finalist, or being host of the challenge aftermath, or maybe even from my time on the real world Brooklyn, but don't judge me for that part. And I'm Devon Rogers. Now, you definitely know me from my time on the challenge and also as America's favorite all star on big brother. And we're teaming up to host MTV's official challenge podcast. That's right. Tori and aneesa are passing the mic to us to dive into the first ever season of the challenge USA, featuring contestants exclusively from big brother, survivor, love island, and the amazing race. Usually we're able to dive into the challenger's mindsets on the challenge aftermath, but I'm excited to do a really deep dive on this podcast. Honey, we're going to be all up in these challenges business they are going to be in the hot seat and they'll have no place to hide. So join us every week as we recap each episode, all the drama, the eliminations, the chaos, who will give you the insight scoop on what's really going on behind the scenes. So David, you know, any predictions? As a challenger, I can't root for big brother, so I think love island is going to go all the way. Now, they might come from a show where flirting is their greatest strength, but I think they'll call some major upsets on the challenge. I also love an underdog story. What about you? Look, all I know is that the big brother contestants started scheming and plotting and planning the second the show was announced, okay? But I don't know, you know, the survivor cast looks pretty intimidating as well. It's a hard choice. Typical big brother, not choosing a side, Devon, are you planned the political game in our own podcast trailer? Girl, that's how you become America's favorite. But we also know that you are the challenge political mastermind. So what you think? Well, you'll just have to keep listening to get on my secrets. Okay. Sneaky, sneaky sneaky.

"Would. I would dare say that when you think about the use of your time and your money. There's no better use than than being i like. You're not gonna find anything that will compare it to it and you just want to think about what you do as a profession and how many referrals it's gonna take to break even and you know. Most of most of our members do that in a month or two. Yeah so what do you say to. The people got a thought on this. I'd like to hear what you say to people who say. Yeah but it takes out. It's a ninety minute meeting. And then if you're if it's in person i've gotta drive to it. I gotta drive you phone calls and oh my goodness then you want me to do one to one. What do you say to those people. Yeah i say that i. You'll learn that there isn't a better use of your time. Where can you go and and you know knock out a meal and hang out with like minded individuals that are really kinda in the same position that you are is that you know business can be lonely when you're an entrepreneur and when you hang out with other people that are going through what you go through it's very uplifting but you also where else can you hang out with twenty or thirty people or forty people. Whatever your chapter sizes that are going to be out there intentionally looking for opportunities for you. I mean i think about social media is somebody asked for. You know somebody to take down a tree and you look and there's nine or ten recommendations and they're all being i people you know it's like we dominate social media. When it comes to that kind of stuff you may know you may be in business alone but you have to be. You do not have to be alone in business. If you're an. I absolutely i think that's so important and people look you know no matter what it's going to take time takes time to build a business you're gonna spend time Cold calling and you're gonna spend time going out and you know maybe talking to your existing clients to get referrals you're going to do advertising. I've got nothing wrong with advertising but advertising costs money and oh how do you make the money. Well you make the money by spending time doing direct selling and such me. networking is so much easier than direct selling. And it's a great use of your time because it is it truly is about farming not hunting and you direct selling your out there hunting. Yes one hundred percent. I'd not done a few doors. Mighty business and i will tell you it was not fun coming to be an i was fun. Yeah look i get it. I mean i started being i because of that. A lot of people don't know this. And i think i mentioned in a podcast many years ago but one of my initial clients I was hired to a train a marketing department. How cold call. I remember that. I know how to call call. I did it long enough to know. I don't want to ever have to do it again for the rest of my life. Does it work. Yeah can work. Although i think it's getting harder on but it's just i didn't find it as fun and i think if someone finds it fun they have had an emotional issue. They're sick. there's something wrong any any closing thoughts. Surely on the time and money aspect now i think i think that when we're talking to visitors and we want them to be a part of our network we just have to be very upfront with them about those things and if we do that. I think that we can definitely get them in our room and they can be the best referral that you could use your chapter. And i think it's good to set expectations to say it's not a get rich quick scheme. It's about building relationships. So it's going to take time but there are pays off overtime.

"Job with follow up after that room after meeting. Orientation is critical. And i gotta tell you. I was really opposed to it when it was first presented to me and i remember it was don lions executive director in the bay area of san francisco. Nice so you gotta see this am i to. We don't need one. More thing added to the agenda. And then i watched it. Oh yeah yeah. This needs to be added to the agenda and i became a believer then and again. If you're chapters not doing an after meeting orientation it's an absolute must and this one is in the manual in need to do it if you're not doing your third point and that is intentional. Follow up you wanna talk about that. Yeah so after that visit orientation like if you haven't closed them or they haven't applied the follow up like who does the fall. When does it happen so so many times. We hear about the honeymoon. After our. And i think that that should be like the person invited them. Maybe as the president you know each chapter has a different feel on that. The thing that jason did in his chapter was it was literally two business days after so he met thursday at noon on tuesday at ten. Am so we had a set time. at ten. Am he would call all the folks that visited and follow up on whether they had fide and and if he could answer any other questions. That is the only time that we ask people to to come to the next meeting. If we just haven't been successful a closing them we never bring that up until we get to that last point But he has a huge close ratio of just in the initial room but then with his follow up. If he doesn't get him there he gets them at the at the follow up so definitely another point that you just can't afford to miss. Yeah what do you say. People who don't have time to follow up. Oh my goodness then. You've got the wrong person so you got to you got to i what i love about what jason did. Is he scheduled a specific time. So the president. That chapter knows at ten o'clock jason's do and that and you gotta make time and if that person can't make the time to follow up then that's you're wrong person you gotta have would you. What's the what's the impact. Because that's not just doing it. It's the impact of doing it. And what kind of impact does it have in terms of the number of people joining because of the for his chapter another twenty percent so his close ratio in the initial room as thirty to forty and as follow up. Get some another twenty percent. And then i gotta give this one last thing about what jason does. So jason yes. He's in that room because he has a huge impact on his chapter. But don't discount the fact that jason has a huge impact on his personal business headed kind of number of people to a chapter. And that's going to impact. Your bottomline is a member. Oh hugely so whether they join. Our jason is often selling them life insurance and so one of the things that jason says at the end of the orientation is i really enjoyed. You know spending time with you guys today And really getting to know you on a different level. I'm gonna put in a good word with you with a membership midi and just let them know individually. You know what i thought of each of you and how you'll be an asset tar chapter if you don't think that impacts is business you're wrong absolutely. There's so what happened to made. You realize we've only got about a minute left. What happened realize that you really needed to focus visit orientation and conversion I'm embarrassed to tell you this. But when we went to zoom and i did a bunch of visitors days and i would jump in the orientation room with with the visitor. Host orientate her The things that we heard and the awkwardness of the conversations and really just no structure to that meeting. I i it was just not what we wanted to present and i felt like they were spending all this time scheduling this huge visitors day and then we just didn't perform and get applications that we needed so we really went to school and making sure you know. We really trained. We weren't trading our people how to do it right and so now we realize you know what a big deal at is right. Uniting chapters really work card to bring visitors and then they run a marginal meeting and they don't follow up and they can't figure out why it's in work. The follow up is really critical when you get visitors so it is. I agree completely Listen any any last thoughts before we wrap up. 'cause we're at our time. Yeah no i we have a lot of visitor host materials coming out. I think jenny but's. It's going to do a future podcasts. Soon and show present those. Everybody super excited. That you know across across being i we're gonna put a bigger focus on the visitor host orientation. I think it's it's excellent. I'll be having jenny on Just one last thing. Before i turn it over to you. Priscilla ironically. I do have a an audio. You talk about meisner audio's which all of the money goes to the foundation. All profits go to that foundation. I actually have a an audio on there. Called the visitor experience where i talk about when visitors coming to the meeting you know. How do you leave him.

"For two years. Where i had been talking about. You know i'm. I'm i'm chief visionary officer i've been talking about the vision of change. That's coming down. The pike and i think it was a little bit more palatable to many people they weren't quite a shocked because they knew the technology was was being developed. I think that's best examples. Yeah no that's a great example. So do you have any vision for the future here. I do think the technology thing is going to continue You know we've talked about holographic mixed reality technologies are coming along and i just saw an article recently about microsoft developing three d technology. Which is really unique. It's not holographic but it's like looking through a glass pane an an imagine on the other side of glass. You see somebody three dimensional. You can see them as though they are literally sitting three feet away from you. And that's technology that microsoft is working on right now and they're you know in a different country. They're in a different state. There you know many many miles away but it's like you're looking at them through a glass pane three-dimensional and so you can see their eyebrows. Raise easily you can see much of their body language it's literally like you're sitting in the same room. So i believe that this. This isn't the end of online. This is just the beginning of online technologies that will make it easier and easier for us to Connect with each other without having to be in person. Now that said. I do believe that through most of my lifetime. We're still going to want to do in person meetings to me. I am going to talk about this in a future. Podcast i believe blended meetings are the transition where we do a in person. Maybe who knows by the way. This isn't policy that. I'm about to tell you this is my. Yeah you my vision. I believe we're gonna see more blended. Maybe we meet him person once a month in online three times a month. And so you get this Both in person and online. And i still love in person. You know priscilla. We've met in person a couple of times and it just so much more powerful to meet in person yet you know through zoom more through a phone call and and so i think the combination is is really perfect for a transitional period Good well that's interesting. Well that's everything. I've got for today Priscilla thank you so much and if you love this idea. The cats on the roof has a change strategy. Talk about it here podcasts.

"Room. Tell us about that. Yes kind of of again of mentioned it. Little bit. Hebei is network such coins. We talked in That the previous book house. We did a while back six five. I think that how a ban on connect was often neglected. And you're able to tell you a story on ben connect and paper able to am if they're looking for your service as a referral partner right place to find you. Side is That's another way to see so think beyond the rim effects beyond ban. I ukraine people getting up five in the morning going into the these other connect and in they're working for you twenty four seven then working for you twenty four seven if you make it all the assets against bayan i creighton.

I asked and i probably mentioned in that previous podcast. And when i moved to austin i found a real estate agent here to help me find a temporary home before we found our you know permanent home and it was really very your real estate agents about six seven seven years ago that had their profile done on being connected crazy but the person who has a profile done. I had them find me a house. She told me the other it Because i didn't know. I didn't keep count. She has now sold ten homes directly from our relationship because she had a profile outside kushner pro.

"That would really be impossible without. Would they were really the foundation of that second page. And then i added in other professions. That weren't necessarily nbn. I but That i have relationships with but yeah they were the baseline for me in that In that second page And so let me ask you another question after. Be an eye in your opinion. Accelerate your results to to be a master chapter. I think we've touched upon that a little bit more. Yeah the thing that we talked about When we when we were writing the book i had great honor of being able to come to your home and work with you on this and it has story that that that you told and and i have been kicking myself last several weeks for not including the book how how most business owners focus on six trying to do six thousand things and you need to do six things at thousand times and i think the real key about vietnam i is. It's your that we the thing that we did including the book of but there are of just a few things that you need to do and that that be an eye gives you the practice that doing them being able to do weekly presentations being able to do gains exchange with one to one being able to pass referrals being able to invite visitors of being able to participate in leadership and then being able to show up at weekly meetings those six things a thousand times. Help make you a master connector and of at make life so much easier than any other marketing approach. You could possibly do. Yeah antique sometimes entrepreneurs they get tired of doing six things at thousand times so they keep chasing a bright shiny objects. And that's a mistake. If i have any superpower whatsoever as a business person. It's that i'm a dog with a bone. And you know i'll do something over and over and over we're on podcast what Persona seven hundred and what seven hundred and five. So that's dog with a bone mentality you know you'd keep putting it out there over and over again and a lot of people don't get that you want to be a master connector you've got to do this consistently it's that timed repetition be an eye of meeting weekly and doing certain things every week that makes i think really really big difference. Well the reason you're building a business is to create a lifestyle for yourself and your family and an asset that you can sell. You can make that as hard as you wanna make it and if you want to chase around bright shiny objects all day and try different approaches every single month go for it but if you want to do it the easy way and you want to build a business that creates a lifestyle for yourself and in an asset for yourself the cell and become a master connector through your chapter do six things thousand times and it will be the easiest most rewarding way that you could have or growing a business and a life. Well robert you make a note. A second edition of the book will put in the six things thousand times. I definitely for those of listening. The book is available on amazon. Dot com you can go to amazon bordering go to the connector effect dot com. That's effect e. f. f. e. c. t. dot com and that'll take you to the amazon link.

"From your personal work. Yeah it does. Support can come both formally and informally so you can have chapters of organizations like ban. I i have Over the years. I've been in a number of mastermind groups which pay group mentoring sessions. And then you have one to a mentoring as and i explore both of those options. But then there's just the informal support. Who can i pick up the phone to. Who can help me with this issue. You know who got check in with and it works both ways you know. I've i've had two people message me today and say how you doing how you coping with everything. I and i think we need to be doing that for each other as much as we possibly can. I'm so it can be a formula info and from your personal network. I'm professional one thing. I would add in mary's. I think the it's a natural thing to look to where the challenges and seek the support from people who have expertise and experience in that challenge and that makes absolute sense. And there's a there's a space for that but there's also a strong argument for diversity of thought and actually getting people who have experienced that challenge necessarily but my been in a similar position in a different context. And then you bring new ideas as well so being open to support from across your network is cake. Well this is. This is good stuff You want to talk anymore about a manic. You've talked about managing how win. We're anything else on that topic. I i think the eu has to. There are certain areas of balance in terms of how much you asked people as well if you're constantly The same people for help unless you have that very strong mentoring relationship you have to care if we can wet wet and you get into the area of of gives us game And understanding that the everything's not one way now it might well be the there's someone who's in a position to help you. You can't necessarily support them but they know that you would if you could. And then there's also the issue of paying a of paying it forward so they continue all you're able to do that my favorite quote and i'm sure i've shared this with you before i. Now i have is from Electrical elizabeth asquith invesco dole to the former british prime minister lord asquith. Who said blessed. I who give without remembering receive without forgetting so we've talked about the receive without forgetting from the gratitude But the giving without remembering. This is a two way process. So i wouldn't encourage people to ask for help. But i also encouraged people to be there for others in the network. I'm proactively seek to help them. as well. good advice. I ran out of time. But there's one other thing. I want to bring your this crazy phrase in. The book called semantic differential questioning. You wanna talk about that a little bit. But i wonder where that came from. Now that came from you and it's something that other painted in a number of entities including one today funnily enough because i think such a key point and since you shared it with me ivan. I found myself using it a law. I it works absolutely it. works now. Might take ruin it before we run out of time. Yeah absolutely so when you ask someone how all you they can say. I'm fine but you ask three times and in three different ways in on it is to to all the lost time is an open question so it might be however are you. I'm fine. how are you coping with the pandemic. yes okay in. What ways is it. Impacting you how things different and if that last question where people open up to you. Yeah i this is such an effective technique. And by the way for those of you listening to this i talked about it. In a number of podcasts podcast six. Oh three guess. Four four three and two three zero. I talk about semantic differential questioning so really effective technique. And and you so much for quoting me in your book and and mentioning me and be an eye. We appreciate it very much So who is this book. Four in your opinion andy. It is a difficult one. Because i was teach people to face specific about where they talk things but it really is a book for for for many people. There's strong business bent. And if you're running a small business You need that support if you're at the top of that business and people look into you For guidance than you need that support around you as well. So i think that's a k. Group that really a lot of people struggling right now and a lotta people need support the need to feel comfortable economic so anyone who i wish. I'd never say anyone who but it really is people who are native open more and and who always saying. Yeah i'm fine. Yes businesses. great and not elaborating.
